NOTE FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL

MID-YEAR EXAMINATIONS

In line with requirements for universities, our students have begun these mid-year assessments and some are making good use of the opportunities for extra support. Most of the southern African universities require a mid-year examination re-sult and not a term mark or cumulative grade. Those who require the National Benchmarking Tests ( NBTs) have written these at home instead of the trek across the border. By now the medical applications should be almost done and ready for dispatch. This is the time for downloading or filling of forms online. Matric students are encouraged to ask for assistance—we are all willing to help.

TRAFFIC CONTROL

This is an appeal to parents to let me know on 76595987 when there is no traffic officer on duty at our turn-off or if there is a road block causing congestion. The gate closing time will then be extended by 5 minutes. A reminder that the school entrance gate does close at 7.30am.

GRADE 6 & 7 PARENTS’ INFORMATION EVENING

Well done to the students and staff for their excellent presentation to prospective parents. The science experi-ments, Engineering Graphics & Design workshop and delicious culinary produce provided a hands-on experi-ence for the parents. Hameed’s enthusiasm for the fine dining industry should encourage many students to consider this career possibility. We plan to invite the Grade 6 and 7 students to a morning of inter-school sport with the Grade 8 students after the mid-term break.COMMUNITY SERVICE: we are collecting dry goods, warm clothing and bedding for the family and village which we support. All contributions are most welcome.

With best wishes

K. Thompson
